This ___ essay. Should there really be enough for everything. Don't get me wrong I'm a child of the 90's an AOL(?) in semester is the only reason I know how to type. I love technology and the things that is allowed us to do especially in the classroom. I would have love to ipatch(?) when I was in school. We had to play organ trail on the 3 desk pads that we're in our classroom. These were donated by some local business but thought they were out dated and slow. I have watch the students at school I also watch my brother who is a sophomore in high school and his friend. There are no social interactions any more unless it's a status update. No one just talk it might text you from across the table but they don't talk.

Hi this is Amy and I'm really excited to be using this tool for the first time and I think that he could definitely be useful in the classroom. I believe more so on the middle school or high school level. I'm sure it's all elementary schools students would be able to navigate minutes late or something like that and also don't believe that all students at any level have a cell phone maybe they do I I know when I was growing up did not I think it would be really cute to school to keep parents posted. I thought that was a great idea and I just think the excess ability to it. I downloaded the on my IPhone and was able to use it right away. I figured that'd great to be able to pick up the phone and actually record yourself talking if you forgot to get it to the piece information.

This Podcast is about the successful practice of reading to and with high schoolers in the classroom, despite how other colleagues may think it is something that should be left to the elementary schools.

Hi. I’m Jamie Horvath, a 4th grade teacher at Northampton Borough Elementary Schools. During this pod-cast, I will provide you with a brief overview of a new district initiative called SWPBS. Change is never easy whether for students or teachers. There are many pressures stemming from NCLB and the need for all students to reach proficiency by 2014. Maximizing “time on task” so students are engaged in relevant learning opportunities is one strategy schools must employ. Adopting a SWPBS program can not only rekindle a positive and safe school climate among students and staff but increase student learning as well. Many schools in Pennsylvania are implementing a Positive Behavior Support program in an attempt to adapt to changing societal needs. SWPBS is a 3-tiered model similar to the widely known Response to Intervention model that focuses on academics. However, SW differs slightly because it hones in on student behaviors, targeting all students for success. The goal is to change from a traditional, reactive approach to discipline that is often quite punitive in nature towards a proactive approach that is more positive in design. The intentions of SWPBS are clear: to improve school climate and safety, reduce discipline referrals, and ultimately increase student achievement. SW creates, teaches, and reinforces appropriate social, emotional, and academic learning skills in the school setting that are essential to fostering productive citizens. There are two key elements that embody the SWPBS program including explicit teaching of behavior expectations and positive speech. Schools that adopt a PBS program often designate the first week of school towards the direct instruction of expected behaviors in all areas including the cafeteria, hallway, bathroom, assemblies, bus arrival and dismissal, and classroom. Once students are familiar with expectations they begin to receive some form of positive reinforcement usually by earning tickets or tokens that can later be cashed in for reward prizes. The use of positive phrasing is a powerful tool that at times can get lost in a teacher’s daily management style. SW provides multiple opportunities for positive, corrective feedback while limiting negative and critical response. Successful implementation of a SWPBS program may take between 3 – 5 years as school staff tailors it to meet their students’ needs. However, taking steps towards positive behavior reforms is crucial in reducing office referrals, improving school climate and safety, and increasing student performance. Thank you for listening to my pod-cast on SWPBS programs. For more information on PBS programs in Pennsylvania, please visit www.papbs.org.
